A woman was robbed and sexually assaulted Sunday night in the Horner Park neighborhood on the North Side, Chicago Police said.

About 9:10 p.m., the 31-year-old woman was walking south on Campbell Avenue near the 2500 block of West Pensacola when a male in a dark sweatshirt grabbed her from behind, threatened her with a handgun and announced a robbery, police said.

The woman complied with his demands and gave him her money and cell phone, police said. He then forced her into an alley where he sexually assaulted her.

The man then ran away, heading west after the assault, police said. He was described as a 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-11 black male of medium build, police said.

The woman was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where her condition was stabilized.

Anyone with information was asked to call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8261.
